Disney’s “Gigantic” a seemingly gorgeous Jack in the Beanstalk tale
It looks like Disney might be going back to the classics with their next animated feature, set to release in 2018. The studio released the first image from film earlier today at the D23 Expo, and we can’t stop staring at it.
As Disney teases in today’s announcement, “Things are looking up at Walt Disney Animation Studios – way up.” The film “Gigantic,” will be Disney’s unique take on “Jack and the Beanstalk,” will feature music from Oscar-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who greeted D23 EXPO fans in signature style—in song—alongside director Nathan Greno (“Tangled”) and producer Dorothy McKim (“Get A Horse!”).
Set in Spain during the Age of Exploration, Disney’s “Gigantic” follows adventure-seeker Jack as he discovers a world of giants hidden within the clouds. He hatches a grand plan with Inma, a 60-foot-tall, 11-year-old girl, and agrees to help her find her way home. But he doesn’t account for her super-sized personality—and who knew giants were so down to earth? “Gigantic” hits theaters in 2018.
